Kingston Eats: Ali Baba Kabab

Food is well prepared and well-seasoned.  Large portions at a reasonable price.  I do prefer the dipping sauce to be served on the side than mixed with the food.  By the way the Arabic black tea is complimentary.  The waitress’s service hasn’t been very great every time I visit.

Chain Eats: Amir Restaurant

Amir is a franchised Lebanese restaurant (fast food style) in a lot of places in Montréal and Greater Montréal areas.  It’s inexpensive and food is quite good.  Service is fast and you get a generous portion of food.  It’s also open late with some stores open for 24 hours.

Pita Kafta Kabab

The yogurt and garlic dipping sauce was a very nice combination.  The kebab was a bit too dry and salty though.

Assorted mix shish-taouk
